Olivia Newton-John's 187-acre Australian Ranch has a new owner who sings "You're the one I want".
The Australian superstar sold a green farm she owned for about 40 years outside of Byron Bay, the country's star. A list of the house was updated this week to indicate that the transaction was complete.
Newton-John, 70, has put this long-standing residence on the market earlier this year, while she spends more time in Gaia, the chic retreat and spa that she co-founded in 2005 at about 30 minutes, she said in a statement in February.
"When we first proposed the Gaia concept, it was a place where we, our group of close friends, could gather and spend our golden years in one place," she said. 'time. "Now these years are upon us and we love it."
It is unclear how much the pop singer had for the bucolic estate, for which she had made bids over A $ 5 million (US $ 3.42 million). The transaction has not yet been registered in the CoreLogic-accessible property records, and its long-time sales agent and friend, Jillian McGrath, has updated the listing to indicate that the price is "undisclosed" .
Newton-John and McGrath could not be contacted immediately for comment.
The Grammy winner – known for her role in the movie "Grease" in 1978, bought the property from seven lots a few years later. She has planted over 10,000 trees on the ground, which borders an ancient rain forest and is home to a variety of birds and other wildlife.
There are also "two magnificent dams, a natural waterfall and a creek and stream running through the property," said the listing agent in a video promoting the home.
In 2002, Newton-John rebuilt the main house, which now includes four bedrooms, a huge farmhouse kitchen and independent dwellings. Rustic interiors include wooden floors and custom walls inlaid with shells and fossil-like pebbles gathered on nearby beaches.
